Need a Proxy for the March 19th Protests?
Is activism on the way back in vogue? We were vibrant and healthy during the Bush years. Then, with the election of Barack Obama,everything changed. Things we railed against suddenly became acceptable. It became unamerican to criticize Mr President. The antiwar community allowed Mr President to institutionalize the crimes of the Bush years. When IVAW did Winter Soldier testimonies in Pasadena, I offered free rides (11/2 hr drive) and only one person responded out of 400. Vets for Peace have been strong and constant. Pockets of resistance pop up here and there. Minneapolis, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco, La, Portland. We approach the March 19 th date of SHOCKNAWE once again. The wars rage on in Iraq and Afghanistan/Pakistan. There will be a big protest in DC. Do you wish you could go but don't have the time or can't get arrested? I could go and would go and be your proxy but do not have airfare. Every body counts. We never know which action may be THE action to ignite the fire again.
